The guest list keeps growing bigger. After Biff Byford (Saxon), Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween, Unisonic), Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon), Bruce Kulick (ex-Kiss) and the German Film Orchestra Babelsberg, another participant can now be announced. Pretty Maids vocalist Ronnie Atkins (his birth certificate reads Paul Christensen) has also been confirmed as one of the guest vocalist on Avantasia's Metal Opera The Mystery Of Time due out in March.

Tobias comments: "I have been a huge Pretty Maids fan since I was a teenager. I already asked Ronnie to be on the Metal Opera in 1999, but he was busy back then. Last year I saw Pretty Maids live, and they were a steam train on stage, unbelievable. After the show we met and Ronnie was a great guy. Finally after 13 years, I am really proud to have him on the new Avantasia album. And his kick-ass performance leaves no doubt: It was a great decision to ask him!"

Hmm, this should be very interesting. He is indeed a great vocalist!
